Veterinary dental pathology can be difficult to detect and diagnose. Dental inspections are important to detect and treat a range of pathologies that can lead to further complications and even systemic disease if not detected and diagnosed early.
A full dental inspection can only be undertaken on an anaesthetised animal. Best practice dental inspections follow a set path so that no single tooth is missed. Each tooth pathology is recorded on the dental chart where appropriate treatments and medication are also recorded.
